Snoop Dogg Partners With Skullcandy & Indaba Music's Community To Source Remixes Of Rapper's New Single "That Tree"


NEW YORK, NY & LOS ANGELES, CA - April 7, 2010 - Indaba Music, the top online destination for music creation, and Skullcandy, the leading designers of headphones and lifestyle products, are proud to announce today the Snoop Dogg "That Tree" remix contest. Fans and fellow musicians can now visit to remix the rapper's new single "That Tree," from his latest album More Malice. The hip-hop legend has already collaborated with Kid Cudi on the song, and now he's providing the track's stems to Indaba community members with the challenge to remix the song, fill in Kid Cudi's verse with their own instrumental or vocal flavor, and get the chance to chill out VIP-style backstage at a Snoop Dogg concert—filmed for Skullcandy TV— and much more.

"I'm excited to see what talent is out there," says Snoop. "I want to see how creative and experimental these young producers and rappers can be with 'That Tree'."
